Another Excellent Week of Options Trading

Closing Out a Fantastic Short Trading Week: 

As we prepare to close out this holiday-shortened week, we’re going to start off by highlighting some more new highs in the SLQT 09/17 $7.50-10 Calls we’ve been tracking since August 31st. SLQT on the stock side of things alone, has risen by a considerable margin, running from 9.19 to 13.24 for a gain of 44%

We also want to update on a set of longer-term options in the EPAY chain that we designated for observation back on the morning of August 16th. EPAY has also made a solid move, and it facilitated some nice moves for our targeted range, the EPAY 09/17 $40-45 Calls.

Here are the new highs in the SLQT targets, as well as the overall range on the EPAY contracts since we alerted on them:

SLQT 09/17 $7.50-10 Calls

EPAY 09/17 $40-45 Calls

Big MRNA Moves, New Ideas & More

Drone Guarder, Inc. DRNG – Recap:

The first thing we want to do this morning as we prepare to close out another trading week, is to mention the performance in DRNG. We tagged this OTC play for the first time in yesterday morning’s premarket report. It responded immediately with a fairly large intraday run that nearly took it to Pennyland right out of the starting gate at the open.

The stock took off from a low of .0031 and surged as high as .0098, which marks intraday upswing of 216% on less volume than the previous session’s all-time record, but still well over than twice the monthly average. We’ll be interested in continuing monitor its movements with the exceptional activity that has occurred this week.


Moderna Inc. MRNA – Options Update: 

Nearly three weeks ago today, on June 21st,  we formulated a set of longer-term options ideas for MRNA, specifically targeting the MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls which have been on a persistent run since then, and have turned in some truly impressive moves.

The stock itself has continued to soar, hitting new highs past the $260 mark yesterday and preparing to gap-up further this morning. Here are the total possible gains in our August calls in just one session shy of three weeks’ time:

MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls
$195: 23.50-67.47 (+187%)
$200: 18.00-63.20 (+251%)
$210: 13.55-54.60 (+303%)

In addition to the new highs we expect as a result of the big gap-up we’re seeing in the premarket, we’re also going to add the MRNA Weekly $265-$280 Calls to our daily watchlist as well.

Options Ideas, Bearish and Bullish

Adobe Inc. ADBE – Options Recap:

Despite a major selloff for the markets along with most stocks yesterday, we did see some impressive intraday moves from our selected options targets in the Adobe chain. We highlighted the ADBE Weekly $457.50-465 Calls, and those saw some significant intraday moves from around 10:15 to 11:30AM.

In a recent consensus of more than a dozen analysts, ADBE was given a 90% Buy Rating, so we won’t rule out the possibility of seeing another significant swing, especially if this trading week pulls itself out of the mud by tomorrow. The company also raised its Full Year 2021 guidance, so it’s quite likely that we will be revisiting ADBE once again in the weeks and months ahead.

ADBE was the major point of interest for us in what was a relatively rocky session as a whole, and those ideas afforded us the following intraday gain possibilities:

ADBE Weekly $457.50-465 Calls
$457.50: 2.62-6.50 (+148%)
$460: 1.92-4.65 (+142%)
$462.50: 1.51-4.14 (+174%)
$465: 1.06-3.16 (+198%)


Fresh Options Ideas:

We’ve also got a couple of fresh ideas based off of the earnings calendar. We’re going to look at next months calls for DRI and some weekly puts on RH.

DRI 04/16 $135-140 Calls
RH Weekly $510-502.50 Puts
